colour challenge - Marika

Hi Amanda,
A belated very basic page for last months colour challenge the colour is grey behind the title but looks black on photograph. Thanks for the inspiration it has been so long since i have been able to get near my scrap desk.

Oh that yellow paper is delicious Marika - love your matting of the word 'carefree' and a fantastic photo in which you really do look carefree!

The silvery grey accents are perfect. The heart is stunning.

Your xmas sounds like it was a fabulous relaxing day. Thanks for joining in the challenge!

Random challenge - triptych

I have noticed a few layouts around with this sort of design happening:


definition here

and some examples of art:

it can be one photo divided into thirds


three photos with similar theme

completely unrelated.

one way i have seen this become popular is with instagram/ hipstamatic type of photos:

or of course the photo booth type of shots:

you could even extend this theme to your page design with 3 patterned papers instead of using photos...

i wonder what you can come up with?

Colour challenge - Zanny

Zanny said ...

"I sat up last night determined to finish this one, as it has been sitting on my scrap-desk for about six weeks!
Several hours later it was complete. It's fairly bland, but it still hurt my head. Thanks for the little message on the blog, it was just the push I needed.
Being a very long winded girl of many words, I journalled the full story and stuck it to the reverse of the layout, as I couldn't for the life of me work out how it was going to fit on the front.
The condensed version on the actual layout reads:
  1. Confess everything to Mum.
  2. Assess damage.
  3. Ring Mr McKenzie and explain.
  4. Relinquish pocket money.
  5. Take photos for historical purposes.
  6. Maintain brake fluid level!!
Captions under the photos read:
{ute photo}    -    'the weapon'
{close-up}    -    'x marks the spot'
{shed shot}    -    'oops'
Happy scrappin'.

WOW Zanny!! 

Love the skid marks!! Very clever! 

Great record with photos and journalling too - and the yellow ute even to go with the challenge!!

Thank you for joining in ... it's never too late!!
